Hello Thomas,
i suggest you to edit xorg.conf by hand. I do this when my monitors won't do
what I want. First i run sax2 to wite the config file and then refine the
conf by hand.
Have you tried calculating the Modelines with xmode? For example 'xmode -x
1400 -y 1050 -r 70' (your screen res @ 70Hz) brings up:

Modeline "1400x1050" 140.79 1400 1496 1648 1896 1050 1051 1054 1092

'man xmode' will tell you more.
You have to (calculate and) paste it in the appropriate section of xorg.conf.
Deactivate the original by commenting them out. Check if the monitor section
got the right display size, HorizSync and VertRefresh values.
